You will achieve skills needed for higher level management in the feed milling industry and related industries. This Feed Manufacturing Technology master study at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) is also an excellent background for further scientific research in feed technology.


What can you use this qualification for?

The study gives you unique knowledge about nutrition and processing technology. The competence is strongly needed in the feed industry. Your expert knowledge within animal feed production gives you many career opportunities.

What will you learn?

The Feed Manufacturing Technology curriculum consists of a combination of nutritional, technological, chemical and physics topics, which combined will represent an unique approach to this topic. You will become familiar with state-of-the-art feed processing equipment. You will learn about formulations and processing of aquafeeds, petfoods and feeds for traditional production animals.

Short description

You will get hands-on experience with the various types of equipment and production lines by fully integrating the possibilities offered by the Centre for Feed Technology in the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) programme.

Teaching and training is partly based on lectures, but a considerable part is offered as demonstrations and training in groups. The courses are mainly taught by teachers from NMBU but external experts from the feed industry and international companies and institutions will also be called in when appropriate.
